Michael Cobbe

It is with great sadness that the family of Michael Cobbe announce his passing on April 26th, 2014. He is survived by his wife Sheila, his son Andrew (Kim), his daughter Sara (Kerry), his grandchildren Emmaleen Penelope and Jack Michael and was loved by all.

Michael was born in Middlesborough, England on June 29th, 1935 and he is predeceased by his father Hugh, his mother Anne and his sister Patricia.

Michael and Sheila immigrated to Canada in 1967. One of his happiest times was spent managing the Bar Q Guest Ranch (now the Sundance Guest Ranch) in the 70’s and 80’s. They went on to manage other resorts and also had their own restaurant in the great community of Spences Bridge, where wonderful friendships still prevail to this day. In his retirement years he was on the Board of Directors of Community Futures Sun Country and served as a Board member of Hat Creek Ranch.

Michael was a gentleman and loved a good conversation about everything from music to English Football. He is still a true Middlesborough United fan.

As we say goodbye, in the words of the great Sinatra, “I did it my way”.
